I am trying to convert my scripts so that I can run them on my iPad. Most of my scripts generate many figures and have pauses after each so the user can view the graph before going on. Is there any way to pause in Matlab Mobile?

Does it not work the same way? In other words, have you tried
uiwait(helpdlg('Click OK to Continue'));
promptMessage = sprintf('Do you want to Continue processing,\nor Cancel to abort processing?');
titleBarCaption = 'Continue?';
button = questdlg(promptMessage, titleBarCaption, 'Continue', 'Cancel', 'Continue');
if strcmpi(button, 'Cancel')
and it doesn't stop and ask you anything?

MATLAB Mobile only supports the pause(n) syntax of pause where n is the number of seconds you would like to pause.

It is only letting me pause for maximum 2 seconds when using my iphone! Does anyone know how to increase the time?

for i=1:duration, pause(1); end
It's silly that one should need this, but I just confirmed that it works.
